As a child, I practiced on friend’s pianos. One of them told me it was possible to earn what was needed to buy a second-hand piano by delivering the phone books. It was not guaranteed money as we could only rely on the tips. During the week, by delivering the yellow pages, I put 750 000 Lires aside, all in 500 and 1000 lire notes and when, with a friend’s tricycle, i went to fetch my first piano, the owner had to spend a lot of time counting the money.
